I would say in my opinion that Brian Brown is wrong and I do believe that sometime in the future that the states with Constitutional Amendments banning Gays and Lesbians the right to marry will eventually be tossed like consensual Sodomy laws were in Lawrence vs Texas(2003).

It won't happen over night......but it will happen!!!

I agree.

It may be as long as 20 years (it took 17 years for SCOTUS to decide that they were wrong about Lawrence, and overturn hat mistake), but it WILL happen in most of our lifetimes.

I don't believe it will take that long......maybe 10 years tops.....and that's even an unrealistic number........but it will not be tomorrow or in the next 3 years.......but probably more like between 5 and 10 years......I believe those are realistic numbers!!!

You might be right. SCOTUS can do whatever it wants, whenever it wants, with regards to that.

We shall see....

It isn't just me....it's all of the GLBTQI Community, our friends, family and supporters......hell, we live in a time that some are more concern with a fetus supposedly masturbating, then about the economy and jobs......where some are worried about who we love and want to marry, instead of worrying about the economy and jobs.........Boehner was more concerned with hiring a lawyer to defend an UNCONSTITUTIONAL ACT with taxpayers money without proper authorization, trying to eliminate overtimes for low income wage earners, giving tax breaks to the top 1% of Americans....INSTEAD of fixing the economy and putting Americans back to work......so, please don't talk to me about the interesting times I live in!!!

Where are all those "SHOVEL-READY JOBS that the Obamaniac trumpeted with great fanfare awhile back ??? I certainly don't see those jobs everywhere with an American citizen standing on every street corner in America with a shovel in hand.

Where are they ?

Did The Obamaniac lie AGAIN ???



I just checked the unemployment rate at the official U.S. government Bureau Of Labor Statistics website.

In January, 2009 when The Obamaniac took office, the unemployment rate was 7.8 percent.

Now, after MORE THAN FOUR YEARS IN OFFICE, The Obamaniac, with his 137-Trillion Dollar "Stimulus Plan" has driven the unemployment rate ALL THEY WAY DOWN TO 7.6 percent !

A drop of TWO-TENTHS OF A SINGLE PERCENTAGE POINT !

OMG ! He IS "The Messiah" !

ALL HAIL THE OBAMANIAC ! His wisdom knows NO bounds !

As The Obamaniac always likes to always say everyday: "I'M A KENYAN !:)"

Sorry, but President Obama took over a deficit from Bush......and Bush put us in 2 illegal acts of Policing actions.......so, don't start......if you hate the President so much and feel you could do a better job.......put your name on the ballot or STFU!!!

I know you can't see them.......but then, you don't want to see anything that this President has done, you just want to bash Him......we've seen this from you for years......try something different.

Oh and let me ask this......would Romney been better? or even McCain?

Now who, I wonder, put the unemployment rate that high to begin with and ruined the economy so badly that it went to 10% taking all that stimulus JUST to get it back to where it is today nearly 6 years later?

Here's a hint: not Obama.

“Let nobody fool you, all the loud noises we hear today are nothing but the death groans of the dying system. The old order is passing away, the new order is coming into being. But whenever there is anything new there are new responsibilities. As we think of this coming new world we must think of the challenge that we confront and the new responsibilities that stand before us. We must prepare to live in a new world.”

Justice Kennedy telegraphed the coming ruling the next time a marriage case gets to the SCOTUS; even Justice Scalia said as much, which is why he joined the liberals in denying standing to the Prop 8 defenders. It was the only way to delay the inevitable marriage equality ruling for a few more years.

The DOMA ruling laid the groundwork with equal protection & due process violations, bans based on animus, and harm to children raised by same-sex families.

The ONLY way the anti-gays can prevent marriage equality nationwide is to prevent these next cases from getting to the SCOTUS. That means they'll have to accept losing a state like Michigan (DeBoer v Synder) or the entire 9th Circuit (Hawaii & Nevada cases) by not appealing the next case they lose. Of course we all know they can't accept ANY loss; they're not smart enough to think strategically.

I predict 5 years max and the SCOTUS overturns all remaining bans.

New Jersey Supreme Court grants a summary judgment hearing on Aug 15th.

New Mexico Supreme Court will rule on marriage equality this summer.

Michigan judge set to rule on marriage ban shortly.

9th Circuit accepts marriage cases from Nevada & Hawaii.

The ball is rolling.......

YES, They would've been MUCH better ! And on the last day of The Obamaniac Regime, when the unemployment has plunged FOUR TENTHS OF ONE PERCENT, you and The Obmaniac are going to say "BUSH'S FAULT !", Right ?:)

What will turn things on the fast track, anyone and I do say anyone who believes that ALL OF DOMA is wrong and HAMMER THAT HOME 24/7. We will make the difference. What will hurt all the law makers who stand on the high mountain, when they see their Towns, City's, and States lose income from the many thousand married gay couple that work for big corporations being unable to move to one of the banned DOMA States. Or the corporation not willing to move to one of the States because of the unleveled christens. The tide is turning and fast. All ABORD

Still better than what McCain or Romney would have done.

Don't worry, President Hillary will have 8 years to finish whatever the GOPasaurs blocked President Obama from getting done.

No, we'll say it's the republican congress's fault for not doing anything in 8 years except trying to outlaw abortions and keeping gays from marrying.

One wonders what this fool is going to do for a job when the organization that he runs collapses following the full embrace of equality under the law.

I don't think there is much money in openly being a bigot and condemning others. Perhaps he can run the travel department of Westboro Baptist Church?
